The black males of today present themselves as rather weak and effeminate.  Do we blame their fathers for abandoning them to be raised under the influence of women? I think that is a large part of the problem. Young men learn how to be men from modeling the behavior of other men. 

Yet, the examples they have to model themselves after are often poor examples of manhood. They roll their eyes, place their hands on their hips, and are emotional and overly sensitive. They tend to be passive aggressive and love getting into cat fights with women both online and off. They throw tantrums which often result in violence towards women and children. And some of the dudes wear more jewelry, makeup, hair dye and tweezed eyebrows than someone's sister. 

Why do black women insist on calling these males who fail at achieving manhood "black kings?" What should black women who insist on exclusively dating/marring a black male do?
